Friday, February 1, 2013 — 3:30 PM EST

The Science and Technology in Society Collaboration and the Philosophy Department at the University of Waterloo invite you to a lecture by Dr. Nancy Tuana: 

"Coupled Ethical-Epistemic Issues in the Climate Sciences"

"Nancy Tuana is the founding director of Penn State’s Rock Ethics Institute and DuPont/Class of 1949 Professor of Philosophy, Science, Technology, and Society, and Women’s Studies.  Dr. Tuana is a philosopher of science and feminist science studies theorist who has been a long time advocate of interdisciplinary research and education.

She is part of a collaborative research team at Penn State whose focus has included: developing a more robust model of research ethics that more adequately reflects the impacts of ethical issues in scientific practice; examining the impact of including ethical uncertainty in global climate change integrated assessment modeling (IAM) with the goal of using this new IAM to address how uncertainty about potential climate threshold responses and future ethical value judgments affects the choice of efficient climate risk management strategies; and a research project that includes ethical analysis in modeling concerning sea-level rise due to global climate change.
